Budget 2016-17: Reform, fiscal commitment and more.

  1. 1. Budget 2016-17 -Reform, fiscal commitment and more. Dr. Rathin Roy Director National Institute of Public Finance and Policy, New Delhi March, 2016
  2. 2. A reform -focused budget that enhances fiscal credibility  In the run-up to the budget, there has been a debate on the desirability of sticking to fiscal consolidation. The economic survey tantalizingly presented both sides of the argument.  The government has maintained its commitment to stick to the fiscal consolidation path. It has maintained the fiscal deficit at 3.9% of GDP in FY 2015-16. It has reduced the revenue deficit to 2.5% from the projected 2.8%.  Thus, the 15-16 revenue/fiscal deficit ratio is 63.84% the lowest since FY 2007. The government has also committed to deliver a fiscal deficit of 3.5% and a revenue deficit of 2.3% of GDP in FY 2016-17

  8. 8. A reform -focused budget that enhances fiscal credibility  This consolidation has been achieved under very difficult circumstances. Growth has been lower than projected, the external environment difficult, the pressure to spend more from just about every interest group, considerable.  The government has finally bitten the bullet and commenced important structural reforms in the fiscal and financial architecture.  This budget has broken with the horrid tradition of taxpayers harassment. More than half of part B of the budget (on taxation) is about reducing litigation, providing certainty, simplifying and rationalizing the tax system.
  9. 9. A reform -focused budget that enhances fiscal credibility  The government has also delivered on its promise made in the last budget, and commenced reducing the headline corporate tax rate while lowering exemptions.  These are strategic reforms which will yield a higher tax-GDP ratio with less taxpayer harassment and greater transparency in the medium term.  I have been depressed and concerned about the bipartisan inability of successive governments to make important structural changes in fiscal management, especially public expenditure reforms.
  10. 10. A reform -focused budget that enhances fiscal credibility  The absence of any output in the public domain from the expenditure management commission has only added to my depression.  It is, therefore, heartening to see that the government has initiated a series of concrete measures on this front. It has announced a new policy for management of government investment.  Renaming the department of disinvestment as the department of investment and public asset management is not just optical. Every fiscal entity must have a strategic framework within which it decides what assets to keep and sell, in line with its delivery priorities.
  11. 11. A reform -focused budget that enhances fiscal credibility  The use of the word “schemes” to describe public spending initiatives was resonant of fiscal drag and pandering. Every “scheme” will now have a sunset date and outcome report. Commendable.  Government has also decided to do away with the plan/non-plan classification. Presumably, this means that we will have a modern medium-term fiscal framework in place with medium- term allocable expenditure ceilings and a credible revenue forecast, built around a macro-fiscal framework that specifies how much government will borrow to meet its fiscal aims.
  12. 12. A reform -focused budget that enhances fiscal credibility  Thus, this budget has put in place all the building blocks necessary to build a fiscal framework which will finally move India from outdated annual budgeting to strategic medium-term fiscal execution.  In this context, I read the proposed review of the FRBM as a step in that direction, unlike many who, I suspect, will see this as a sign that government wishes to backtrack on its future consolidation commitments. Other important reforms -- to the Indian financial code, rationalizing CSSs and targeting subsidies, and improving the ease of doing business -- have also been announced.
  13. 13. A reform -focused budget that enhances fiscal credibility  There are, of course, some bad habits in this budget which persist.  The most serious is the continued tendency to increase cesses rather than tax rates to meet intended spending objectives.  This would nominally be an optical matter, but in our system, cesses are not shared with states and imposing these is tantamount to an unfair theft of resources from the divisible pool.
  14. 14. Cesses Budget 2016-17 Cess Rate Notes Krishi Kalyan Cess 0.50% At 0.5% on all taxable services, proceeds of which would be exclusively used for financing initiatives relating to improvement of agriculture and welfare of farmers. The Cess will come into force with effect from 1st June 2016. Input Tax credit of this cess will be available for payment of this cess. Infrastrcuture Cess 1% Levied on small petrol, LPG, CNG cars, 2.5% on diesel cars of certain capacity Infrastrcuture Cess 4% Levied on other higher engine capacity vehicles and SUVs. Clean Environment Cess 200 per tonne to `400 per tonne Levied on Coal Oil Industries Development Cess Existing: ` 4500 PMT Proposed: 20% ad valorem Levied on domestically produced crude oil 13 cesses, levied by various Ministries Abolished To reduce multiplicity of taxes, associated cascading and to reduce cost of collection. The revenue collection for these cesses is less than `50 crore in a year.
  15. 15. Cesses Budget 2015-16 Cess Rate Notes Education Cess 2% Levied on Income Tax Clean Energy Cess On Union Excise Duty The effective rate of Clean Energy Cess is being increased from 100 per tonne to 200 per tonne. Levied from 1st March 2015 Swachh Bharat Cess 0.5% Government has levied a Swachh Bharat Cess at the rate of 0.5% on all taxable services from 15th Nov 2015. Road Cess The road cess has been increased from Rs 2 to Rs 8 for petrol and diesel, but the effective rate is Rs 6 Levied from 1st March 2015
  16. 16. A reform -focused budget that enhances fiscal credibility  There continue to be an unacceptably high number of exemptions and rebates on direct and indirect taxes which clearly pander to specific interest groups and leech revenue that could be used for other purposes. This is a bad legacy that continues.  The share of subsidies in total expenditure has not fallen, despite a fall in fuel subsidies.

  18. 18. A reform -focused budget that enhances fiscal credibility  Like every budget, this one makes grandiose claims and seeks to please political constituencies.  But unlike many in the past, it maintains prudence, enhances credibility of the government as a fiscal manager and initiates important, unglamorous structural reforms.

  21. 21.
